Starr Gate Nears Completion

The upgrade of the tramway this Winter has made considerable pace with Pleasure Beach – Starr Gate almost complete. All trackwork and overhead wiring has now been completed in this section with the new Starr Gate tram stop already complete with a shelter, even though passenger services will not operate to Starr Gate until 2012.

North Pier to Gynn Square

At North Pier the three track section has been moved slightly South towards Tower which is currently being laid. This should solve the problem of trams being delayed by service 1 buses as the bus stop was originally planned to be moved out of the tram lines, though if this plan is to happen will still to be seen. Moving North towards Gynn Square trackwork is all dug up and the trackbed has been lifted, though new rails are not yet in place.
